Solve Problems with Cloud Printing

Why is the cloud service not printing the document? The tip calls causes and shows you how to express yourself.

Many printers and multifunction devices can be combined with cloud services to output stored documents without the need for a computer. This is practically practical. To prepare the documents for printing, the printer manufacturers use their own services, such as HP’s ePrint, Epson’s eConnect, or Canon’s CloudLink. They promise to express themselves by simply connecting and retrieving the cloud document.

Cloud Printing – the sequence: cloud print services of equipment manufacturers are always similar: At Canon Cloud Link as you reach the service in two ways – on the screen of your printer or via mobile device and web browser at http://cd.c-ij.com . In both cases, you and your printer in need Canon inkjet Cloud Printing Center to be registered. Now select the desired cloud storage – about Google Drive – and log in. You can recognize the printable documents on colorful symbols. If a file can not be output, the document symbol is grayed out or marked as unknown with a question mark. Ideally, click on the desired file icon, set the print properties, and send the print job. Shortly afterwards you get the expression.

Cloud Printing – the obstacles: But actually as printable recognized documents can cause problems. For example, the Canon service can not deal with older Office files. Although you are sending the print job, it is canceled with the “Error” flag. The result is that the printer only spit out blank sheets or does not react at all.

Converting the solution: Most of them are in older Office documents to templates that are often used to come as delivery notes, order lists, summary tables, or the like. Here it is worthwhile to save the documents in current Office versions. After all, files with endings such as docx or xlsx can be processed by the cloud printer driver in our experience. Even with images, a format change leads to success: Thus, images can always be printed as JPGs, while formats such as Tiff or PNG often cause problems.
